The risk isn't necessarily higher for the seller even if that player is an established star. If Dallas doesn't win the cup that trade looks horrible, ditto for Calgary. But sometimes you have to go for it when you're close to a cup. That's why I wished we could've gone after Bobby Ryan years ago because we probably could've gotten him.
